The North Platte Community College High School All-Star Basketball Game will be played on June 2.

The teams are made up of players who recently graduated from western Nebraska high schools. Among the players will be North Platte High star River Johnston, as well as Will Moats and Zarek Branch, who helped North Platte St. Pat’s finish as the runner-up in Class D1 this year.

The girls’ game will feature Tonja Heirigs, the career all-time leading scorer for St. Pat’s.

Tory Gilson of Gothenburg and Shawn Sullivan of Wallace have been chosen to serve as the head coaches for the girls teams. New North Platte High Head Boys’ Basketball Coach Jimmie Pack and Joel Nelson of Gordon-Rushville will lead the way on the boys side.
